Dear Colleagues,
A group of neuropsychologists from ten countries has come together to study the state of professional practices in the field of neuropsychology. This group has put together an international survey to collect information on academic and clinical practices, as well as professional activities of neuropsychologists around the world. At least 4500 professionals from 40 countries have already responded to this survey. We hope that you will consider participation in the survey as this will provide a Canadian perspective of neuropsychology. If you are a psychologist trained in neuropsychology or if you have worked in the field of neuropsychology (assessment, intervention, etc.) in the last year, we kindly ask you to participate in this online survey. An ethics committee has approved this study and participation is anonymous.

Your involvement
Your participation in this project involves answering an online survey (30 minutes) about your practice in the field of neuropsychology. We ask that you complete the survey as soon as possible (within 30 days of receipt of this letter).

Benefits in your participation
There are no direct benefits in participating, but your survey responses will contribute to the development of your profession. The results of this study will be published in a peer-reviewed neuropsychology journal. Access to the results of the study will be available in the published article. There is no risk of participating in the present study.

Above Water


Dear members of the PAA,

 

You are invited to participate in a study assessing the game Above Water, developed by Rina R. Wehbe (rina.wehbe@uwaterloo.ca) and team under the supervision of Dr. Lennart E. Nacke and Dr. Edward Lank at the University of Waterloo. Above Water is designed to help people learn about the stigma associated with clinical anxiety, specifically generalized anxiety and panic disorder.  

 

As an expert participant in this study, you will be asked to evaluate and provide feedback on Above Water (a card game with digital components), especially with respect to your thoughts on its use and other feedback based on your professional expertise. Participation in this study is voluntary, and we ask you to complete it on your own time. We expect the evaluation of the game to take approximately half an hour to an hour, and a follow up interview to take approximately one hour. Follow up will be conducted either in person, via telephone/Skype, or via email, whichever is preferable to you. You may decline to answer any questions; you may decide to withdraw at any time.

 

Please see attached Information Letter for more details about the game and the study. If you are interested in participating or would like more information on our project, please contact research assistant Kelly Zhang at ky4zhang@uwaterloo.ca.
